Testimonials

House sitting in St Germain, Paris

We spent a wonderful two weeks house sitting for the Ash family, all of whom were lovely. The house is very comfortable and situated close to the St Germain forest which provided wonderful walks for Hoppy their affectionate Labrador. The house is close to the RER station which made trips into Paris easy although there is a lot to see in the town itself, with 3 markets in the week. The family were very easy to communicate with both before and during the house sitting and instructions were clear. Anybody chosen to house sit will be very lucky. We look forward to keeping in communication with the family.

Dream location at 20 minutes from Paris!

In the middle of the charming town of Saint Germain en Laye with all facilities, shops and markets, and the former palace of Louis XIV, the Royal Park & a huge forest around the corner, you find this breathtakingly beautiful house with spacious garden, and … a truly sweet family dog called Hoppy (Labrador). The house owners have their top floor (second floor) turned into a convenient, cosy guest room with own private bathroom for the house sitters to use. Like the rest of the house, it is so attractively decorated, and full of character, that you feel inmediately at home. If you like the buzzling, metropolitan life of Paris but at the same time like to stay in a green oasis surrounded by historic buildings then this is the perfect location! We enjoyed the splendid views over Paris and the nearby Seine from the Royal Park as we walked the dog there everyday. You can easily reach this suburb by public transport (trains, buses, RER). If you bring your car then parking is not an issue as you can just drive into the secluded, private garden and leave it there. We can truly recommend this wonderful place with very sympathetic and hospitable owners for an unforgettable housesit.
